The city of Casselberry wants to hire one or more transportation planning and engineering firms to serve as consultants over the next few years on transportation projects and studies, according to a Statement of Qualifications (SOQ) published last week.
The city adopted "Connecting Casselberry: The Casselberry Multimodal Transportation Master Plan" in August of last year. This serves as its core transportation planning document, and includes a 10-year capital improvement plan, policies, design guidelines and a series of future study tasks.
Firms selected under this SOQ may be assigned to work on a handful of specific projects already funded for the coming years, including a bicycle and pedestrian improvements program for S. Winter Park Drive in 2018, complete street improvements for Lake Kathryn Circle, new on-street parking for a handful of roads near parks, and pedestrian connectivity improvements.
Casselberry anticipates contracts will be awarded for a five-year terms with the opportunity for multiple one-year renewals.
These continuing contracts must comply with Florida's statute known as the Consultants' Competitive Negotiation Act (CCNA), which are limited to projects in which construction costs do not exceed $2 million, and when the fee for professional services doesn't exeed $200,000.
Applicants must meet a variety of criteria to be considered, including a minimum of five consecutive years in business, demonstrated technical transportation design experience, permitting and compliance experience with state and regional agencies in relation to transportation projects, and experience with transportation study and planning.
Written responses are due Aug. 29, at 2 p.m. to the city's Procurement Division office.
